Well they aren't 44's, but I have a Ruger Blackhawk (4-5/8" Bbl) and a Smith & Wesson Mountain Gun (4" Bbl) both in 41 Rem Mag.
As many before me have stated, the Smith is more refined with a better trigger,
but recoil is more manageable with the Blackhawk (plow-handle grip).
I love them both equally, and have been searching for a 41 Mag 5.5" Redhawk in blue/wood for years,
but they are always priced out of reach for me ($1000. + ).
I was considering a 44 Redhawk to satisfy my craving, until I find a Redhawk in 41.
